Borders

Synopsis

24 October 2015, a nice day in autumn in a nice landscape. A crowd of refugees and migrants accompanied by soldiers and police officers make their way from the Schengen
border between Slovenia and Croatia towards the refugee camp in Brežice. Suddenly, the
landscape starts to appear less nice than it was.

director's statement

In 2002 I made a feature film about two traffickers smuggling people into EU. Thirteen years later I decided to make a short film about lines of refugees crossing those exact same border accompanied by the police and soldiers carrying automatic rifles. When dealing with such a subject the author must ask themselves about the ethics of 'directing'. I decided on a 'no directing' approach - I used a static, 'Lumiere-style' camera, without direction or editing. Like an eerie remake of “The Arrival of a Train”.
